Today I think I’ve finally stopped feeling the side-effects of Clonazepam. I felt so dumb and couldn’t do anything right. I also slept too much. Now, I feel brighter and more confident that I’m able to speak an intelligible sentence. I hate that stuff and don’t ever want to take it again.
It was working on my myoclonus and tremors. My jerks have come back and my tremors are a little bit worse. After getting such a discouraging Cervical MRI, the doctor scheduled me to come back next week to have a full MRI for the rest of my spine. I wish he had done the entire spine the first time! UGH!
Did you have to return many Christmas gifts? I loved all my things, but my youngest wants a lot of things returned. Because I was taking that horrible drug, I was much more forgetful and dumb, I lost the receipts for almost everything. This isn’t too good for our budget.
Unlike a lot of the country, we’ve had little precipitation this year. Only a few flakes of snow fell this time the winter storm blew by. On the stormy days, my arthritis sure made itself known. Even though we came back home on December 28, I got still had some swelling in my legs and feet. I just have a little ankle swelling now and it feels better. I lost about 6 pounds of fluid.
I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend at home, watching football. Whatever you enjoy doing, I hope that you can do it this weekend.
